We were on our way to Virginia Beach and decided to stop in Smithfield. This was the first motel off 95 so that is where we stopped. We should have known to turn around just by the condition of the driveway into the parking lot. Check in was outside through a window. It was almost impossible to hear the desk clerk through this window. When we finally go the room we were all the way on the end. We got into the room and could not put the lights on. The light switches did not work. We had to get into the room and put on the bathroom light and the lights by the bed to get some light. There was also about a 2 inch gap between the bottom of the door and ground. Besides letting in outside light I am sure it let in all sorts of bugs from outside. The bathroom was disgusting....crumbling plaster, moldy shower curtain and moldy odor. The beds were uncomfortable and lumpy. The bedspread and blankets were stained. The carpets were dirty and stained. Outside our back window was all sorts of equipments....saw horses, bags of sand, big barrels, black tar like stuff, etc. This was not a good place to stay. Dirty and badly in need of a major renovation and cleaning. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
